Things just keep getting worse for Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.).

An attorney for U.S. Sen. John Ensign says the senator’s parents gave his mistress and her family nearly $100,000.

In statement released Thursday, Paul Coggins says Ensign’s parents made the gifts “out of concern for the well being of longtime family friends during difficult time.”

Coggins says the gift was made in the form of a check totaling $96,000 in April 2008, after the Nevada Republican had told his parents of his affair.
